I have had a idea of this happening since September. Apparently the Trinity power was not to good and the distributor over here in the UK has just signed up to distribute Peak stuff. Hopefully he will now have the motors and batteries he deserves and be WC once again. Rick

Trinity's new motors blow and they either don't realize it or don't care. Or they could be tired of dealing with the Big "E"

If you are not Joel Johnson and run for Trinity you are disposable!!! No one is safe but Joel and Tony P. All others will be booted or will leave sooner or later. I can name at least 2 pretty well know racers that left because Ernie tried to screw them over. One works for Tony Stewart as a Pilot and runnning Custom Works so I guess he has the last laugh.

When I was in N.J. I got to see first hand the revolving door at trinity. Not just with racers but with the people that work there and design the cars.

Will be interesting to see if he signs for another team as well, i have heard rumors losi might be out as well but who knows.

At the 1/10 euros a year ago he just had a big box of Trinity cells, unmatched and was building sets up there and was quite pissed off to say the least. Rick

Kinda funny how 2 of the nicest guys in racing leave Trinity. Cyrul is a super nice guy and Spashett is just as nice. Dave visited our track to practice some carpet before Cleveland and few years back anc he was very helpful to all the guys and just all around nice guy in the hobby.

Matt I hear ya. I know Kirby Hand, Ryan Hand, and Rob Cutman all go screwed by Ernie. Ernie use to tell Rob he didn't have money to give him his raise at this time and then a week later Ernie would spout off how he just bought a Micheal Jordan jersery for 5,000 bucks. I guess he didn't have the money for his good employees.

Im not very surprised David runs for Peak now. At this years Euros he used a Peak/Orion motor during at least one run. Just was at the right time at right place to see a motor in his car.
But I hope David will be back at the top again. He really is a nice guy.
